The Hub — one of Kent State's centers of communications on campus.
KENT STATE UNIVERSITY
Words, words, words — an
always constant flow of
the daily written language.
It is a wise man who knows what he wants and
how to get it. It is c wiser man who prays, not only
for himself, but for others. Through prayer comes
a real, on honest communication. This communi-
cation Is not adulterated by trite phrases — this com-
munication is known as TRUTH.
So on Sunday comes a universal communication
between the men of the Christian world, united in
the joint communion of prayer.
The satisfaction of reading a book, be it good
or poor — that, too, is communication. The relaying
of an author's thought to the mind of the reader.
Reading opens a vista of new ideas to the world.
And reading is communication.
So is music, spread throughout the world on
flat, block discs — creating o message of sadness
and joy that is unbounded by language barriers nor
Writing, too — whether it be by letter or for pub-
lication — offers a release of ideas. A satisfaction
within itself, writing is perhaps the most common
source of self-expression.
The world of mass communication is a world of
living experience — and it makes the world a far
better and far happier place in which to grow and
live and learn.
Students Enjoy the Convenience
A juke box presents an escape from ordinary sights and sounds.
Young people enjoy growing up with a new medium of communications.
of Modern Communications
A boy calls a girl for a date that evening.
The magic of communications — be it the
day-to-day type of conversation spilled over tele-
phone wires throughout the nation or the once in
a lifetime television broadcast, foretelling perhaps
the destiny of the entire nation.
On campus, the telephones are kept humming
from day to night with a host of incoming and out-
going calls. And in the dormitories, the Hub and
the journalism lounge television sets spell out en-
tertainment and news of the moment.
And who can forget the jukebox — that paragon
of things musical — from rock 'n roll to sweet 'n
smooth — that's the message communicated by the
record machine. So even with entertainment comes
An operator intercepts and connects the line.
Communication is completed — the girl answers.
Speech therapy often helps in the all-important function which is vital to everyone, and that is to speak.
Communication is not only for those who
are endowed with the physical speech or-
gans. Even those less fortunate are gifted
with methods of speaking.
Some such ways are taught in the Uni-
versity classrooms. Sign language provides
speech for the deaf; braille helps the blind
to discover the mysteries of literature. So
to all comes the magic of communication — ■
unhindered by physical defects.
The physically sound sit in a lecture
class and consume the fruits of a profes-
sorial lecture — so it goes all through the
college years — the give-and-take of class-
room procedure, outfitting the student for
the rougher give-and-take of the working
Possibly the most vigorous form of com-
munication occurs on the athletic field.
Before the game, it is the coach who maps
the strategy and informs the players of the
up-and-coming game situation, the play to
be stressed, the play to be watched for.
And, on the field of play, it is the players
who turn to communication — brute com-
munication in the form of tackles, blocks,
and side-arms. All this is but communica-
tion in a thousand different guises. For the
art of communication wears a thousand
masques, each more intricate than the first
and each beneficial in its way.
The often-heard sound on campus by students — the voice of a prof.
A coach communicates with his keen
mind while watching from the side.

The student photographer finds his outlet in film, flash bulbs, a camera on a tripod and a willing subject to pose.
An art design class releases communication made possible through its outlet of creative drawing.
March Through the Magic of Art
Self-expression, too, is a means of commun-
ication. The artist puts his deepest feelings
into a painting which is then re'ayed through
the eyes of the onlooker.
So it is with photography — an image trans-
formed through the miracle of chemistry into
o lasting and material object captured in the
rapture of a single moment. Again, it is the
artist, the photographer, communicating with
The same holds true for sculpture, this re-
cording for posterity of a pose. And music, too,
is a definite form of communication. Only
with music, the communication is achieved
through another sense — that of hearing. Mu-
sic is an idea of a composer transmitted to the
listener. Communication thus is carried on
even through the arts.
Ideas take shape in many ways and forms.
Music — an uncharted vista
of worldwide communication.
The student mail boxes provide on excellent means for exchanging notes, ideas, and dates.
An Eyeful Through the Written Word
Expression is achieved through the written word,
one of the best known and most acclaimed medias
of modern communication.
Perhaps the most widely known media of written
communication is the newspaper. Through the daily
press comes all sorts of written matter designed to
inform, interpret and entertain.
So it is on campus. The daily newspaper and the
very yearbook you hold — these are media of written
So are student mailboxes — jammed, often to
overflowing with notices of meetings, personal cor-
respondence and University information bulletins.
Another method of intra-campus communication
are the numerous bulletin boards, scattered
throughout the halls and manned by virtually every
department imagineable. Walk through Kent hall
and there can be found news of educational oppor-
tunities in sociology, psychology and education
itself. All this is possible through the use of the
Each University department also offers its share
of communicative literature in the form of pam-
phlets, leaflets and mimeographed letters.
Incoming freshmen are greeted each fall with
the written word in a variety of guises — in the K-
book, in the catalogue, and in the often-confusing
schedule of classes. This is communication through
The written message is also carried to the student by
posters and notices placed on the bulletin boards.
Science faces the challenge of communications with its methods of test tubes, microscopes and bunsen burners
Communication Through Experimentation
The word communication is basic . . . people use it
for everything from the telephone and the radio to the
boss's last memo. Communication, is of course, as old
as man's first "Ugh!"
All day, every day, communication is carried on —
by word, by glance, and by gesture. There are a good
dozen sciences examining communication from every
angle under their respective microscopes . . . group dy-
namics, study of the human mind and mechanical-elec-
trical communication systems.
Mood-setting for study — be
it math, music or methods.
Slides and movies open an entire-
ly new vista for the students in
their daily classroom schedules.
Match the Universal Pace
Communication comes in many forms.
Classes are one of the main packages in
which thoughts are passed from person to
In biology, there is a communication of
physical facts, ideas and theses. Here is im-
parted i<nowledge of the human anatomy.
Here economics is another field of com-
munication — through sewing, cooking and
book learning, students communicate and
become, themselves, a part of the communi--
Psychology, learning the basis of the hu-
man operation — that, too, leans toward the
acquiring and imparting of knowledge.
And so does mathematics — a communica-
tion through the use of numbers, letters and
formulae. A new kind, a different kind, but
communication, in its most objective form.
Such is the way of communication — from
the study of the human organism, to the sub-
jective study of psychology — and on to ob-
r A sPi
A stitch in time makes a home ec major.
Clinical tests offer psychological guid-
ance for those seeking personal answers.
Mammals are prepared for slides so all may learn.
Even the smallest children have unique methods of communicating when they wish to express their thoughts.
Education - - Watchword of Tomorrow
A definition of communication might be; any
behavior that leads to an exchange of meaning.
Taught from the early grades up, a child learns how
to communicate with his fellow beings — through sim-
ple processes that are taken for granted, but that are
so necessary and important.
In some education centers, communication classes
have sprouted up — to teach the meaning of this ex-
change to children — just the ordinary methods of
reading, writing, and speech.
Guidance for young minds through student teaching.
Classes are, in themselves, forms of communica-
tion as, indeed, education is basically little more than
a mass means of communication between professor
This means of communication is through lecture,
through reports, through graphs, through motion
pictures and through written and oral tests. All these
are but a few forms that classroom communication
In a business class, communication may take the
form of the typewritten word, the shorthand symbol,
or business machine verbalizing. And in journalism,
the written word takes the fore — woven into stories
of intrigue and adventure and routine tales of police
action, council meetings, and sports. And so is there
communication among the teachers of tomorrow as
they discuss the proper and improper methods of
coordinating their classroom techniques.
All phases of study activity can be deemed a form
of communication, for verbal and written methods ore
themselves the basis of study. So does communica-
tion enter into the heart of the University — the
Dictation, typing — all necessary in the business world.

ndustnal arts plays a role in communications —
a role that fits into the deliberate communication,
that of producing the material and equipment that
covers the field.
Good communication is communication that a
person understands, accepts and acts upon. Building
communication pays as high a dividend as that of re-
ceiving it. Our business world is more highly mech-
anized today and uses the industrial arts field for this

Learning By Doing
The word communication may be basic, but its
meaning is for from crystal clear. People use it for
everything and go off at several different tangents
applying the label "communication" to each.
Through classes such as home economics and ma-
chine shop work, communications is parted through
the physical equipment rather than the oral and writ-

Blue and gold megaphones, a new tradition, replaced the freshman dinks during 1955.
2,100 Freshmen Start College Life
Eyes level — click — here's your ID cord.
"From the beauty land Ohio" .... found itself be-
ing sung from the throats of more than 2,100 fresh-
men, as the class of '59 began to get entrenched in the
halls of KSU.
For the first time in many years the traditional
dink was conspicuously absent from the freshman at-
tire for the week. Because of University action, the
freshman headdress was not in sight.
Instead, megaphones in the gold and blue of KSU
were carried by freshmen. The class of 1960 will
again be possessors of dinks, as a result of a student
Long lines for registration, long lines for fee pay-
ments and long lines for housing presented the fresh-
men with their first taste of college life.
Informal dances, a welcoming address by Presi-
dent Bowman, the Freshmen Prevue and campus tours
all combined to give the freshmen a small taste of
what the next four years on the Kent State campus
would be like.

ment of class schedules and examinations — and lines.
It was the beginning of o life at o home away from

izations and studies were to play an important part.
Freshman vocal talent was a highlight of the week.

Among the many campus events, Kent State's
annual 34th homecoming celebration was one of the
Homecoming fairly burst with activities, starting
with the registration of some 7000 returning alumni
beginning at 9;30 a.m. in the Union ballroom.
Next came the judging of house decorations
erected by independent groups, fraternities and sor-
orities. Trophies were awarded to the different groups
on the basis of originality, craftsmanship, theme and
over-all effect. The winning organizations were an-
nounced that night at the Homecoming dance.

Each of the dormitories went all-out to celebrate
the season with festive decorations. Perhaps the most
impressive was Terrace Hall, with a giant Christmas
tree in the main lobby and smaller blue ones in each
of the twin lobbies.
But perhaps the most memorable holiday event
of the season was the annual singing of Handel's

sang to the new members.
The huge ballroom sported the colorful banners of
the different fraternities and sororities. This and the
setting of soft lights and music combined for a won-
derful night of entertainment for the Greeks.
A let-down on the usual feelings of competition
is one of the nice features of the dance. The tradition-

Morrow Makes Mellow Music
Miss Kent State, Sally Andrus, is honored at Top Hop.
Formerly presented as a concert, Top Hop this
year returned to the ranks of campus dances. Open
to all University students, the donee was held the
night before Washington's birthday, with two o'clock
permits given all women students.
Dancing was to the swinging music of Mr. 'Night
Train,' Buddy Morrow, and he obliged with an encore
of his best-selling disc.
Attendance was estimated to have hit the 400
mark — all-time high for a pre-vacation dance. Attire
was dressy, ranging from knit suits to sheath dresses.
Highlight of the evening was the intermission
crowning of Miss Kent State by the chairman of the
University Social Committee. Also presented were her
two attendants, selected on a point basis to vie for
the final title. The winner was selected by an all-
University election. Gifts were presented the queen
by her sorority. Student Council, Social committee and
various additional organizations.
The 1956 edition of the Top Hop, which last year
featured the Commanders, was a fitting beginning
for the Washington's Birthday holiday and a welcome
mid-week break for undergraduates and their dates.

for the Top Hop concert.

and undergraduates swarmed on campus for the
16th annual celebration of Campus Day.
Highlight of the morning program was the
coronation of Queen Patti Maher by Student Coun-
cil President Joe Franko and the presentation of her
ten member court. Also participating in the in-
augural procession were white-clad members of

journalism fraternity. Regatta was originally a project
of the Kent Stater staff and later was organized on
an independent basis with student chairmen. Dick
Baun headed the 1955 event.

included a Charleston solo, a clown act, two duets,
several chorus routines, an all-mole sextet, and a
block-light tropical jazz performance.
Breathtaking high dives brought the hour and a

The thunderstorm, coming just after the final
Rowboat Regatta race, cancelled the original plans
for on afternoon of dual activity, but the Gamma

event for the following Tuesday.
Held on the lawn to the side of Rockwell library,
the relays offered Greeks an opportunity to frolic in
a series of skill contests.
Included on the agenda were such stunts as a
pie-eating contest, balloon breaking contest, egg-

Nestled amid the northeastern Ohio hills
is Kent State University — where knowledge-
thirsty men and women come to quench their
draught. Here is where the leaders of tomor-
row are weaned on such staples as psychology,
biology, history and English. This is the well-
oiled machinery of learning and teaching
welded into one. Here is EDUCATION.
Easy enough to attain these days, educa-
tion can provide the key to the future. At
Kent State, eager students are instructed with
on eye to that future, with the goal of security
always before them. And only through the
education of today's men and women con
security be assured, not only on an individual
plane, but also on a much greater scope.
Kent State provides the book-learning, but
it is each student's opportunity to apply that
learning to their chosen vocation. The Uni-
versity also supplies practical experience in a
variety of fields — radio, journalism, chemistry
and literature. Horizons for the graduate are
Board of Trustees
Kent State gives a note of thanks to its Board of
Trustees and a special note of appreciation to its as-
sistant secretary, Mrs. Alice Makinson.
Mrs. Makinson holds two positions, for she is also
secretary to Kent State's president, George Bowman.
A group of six members compose the Board of
Trustees. Five of the board are appointed, one each
year for a period of five years, by the Governor of
Ohio, with the consent of Legislature. The sixth mem-
ber is the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Some of the jobs allocated to the board are the
appropriation of school funds, expansion programs,
and the policies of the University.
As for projects in the near future, the student body
can look forward to the granting of their wishes after
careful consideration by this group.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES, left to right: Robert C. Dix,
Sec; Charles H. Lake, Vice Pres.; John R. Williams,
Pres.; Otto J. Korb, Treas.; Robert H. Stopher, Trustee.
Girl Friday for both the board of trustees and the
President as secretary, is Mrs. Alice Makinson.
Chief public relations man, planner, and administrator,
is president of Kent State University, George Bowman.
Pres- Bowman — One Man Team
To be the head of a university, its overseer, its
judge, its keeper, and its organizer, is a fulltime
job for President George Bowman, In fact, there
is a lot of overtime put in — but the reward is
more than gratifying — it is a satisfaction that
everything is running smoothly, and that missing
links are replaced, while rusty spots smoothed
out. President Bowman is highly respected by
both colleagues and students who feel that in this
man they have an able administrator and
Personnel Deans Stress Social Rules
Mrs. Davis may be a new name, but the
same warm-understanding prevails.
Her friendly smile and over-all glow are the trade-
mark of Kent State's Dean of Women. Into her cap-
able hands falls the responsibility of the entire student
women body as well as the odvisorship of the Asso-
ciation of Women Students. A warm personality and
unbiased opinion ore qualities in her job that have
become well-known to those who have met her.
The duties of a dean often become involved, but
although the headaches seem frequent, there is sat-
isfaction in the knowledge that hundreds of girls
hove been helped and many friendships secured.
During the Thanksgiving vacation, Dean Swan-
son took on another career when she became Mrs.
A ready smile and sympathetic listener
can be found in KSU's Dean of Men.
One office door that is always open to the men
students on campus is that of Glen T. Nygreen, their
dean. When advice is needed, or perhaps just a plain
man-to-man talk. Dean Nygreen can be counted on
to be there.
To be in charge of the daily problems of hundreds
of students requires great patience and endurance.
But with the understanding and sympathy that can be
found in the Dean of Men, the task is lightened by
the thanks of grateful students. Dean Nygreen is
highly respected by his students and is known for his
helpful counseling. He is always in constant touch
with the student body.

Men Behind The Scenes
To be a well-run organization, a university
must have a clear-cut decentralization of its ad-
ministration. And Kent State has just that, with
each department efficiently run by capable heads.
A student's problems, whatever they are, are taken
care of, swiftly, and surely.
Financial wizard of Kent's
treasury is the University
comptroller, Paul E. Beck.
The student's friend is Loren
Hadley, who is Kent's able
director of student advising.

is a never-ending task for

News, Jobs 'N Guidance
At Kent State, there are channels within the Uni-
versity that help the students with their special ser-
vices. The men in charge of these operations know
all there is about their duties, and each works hard
to keep his department well-stocked with necessary
tools and connections that are needed. Through
their efficient handling, good public relations is
maintained between University, student, and the
outside public with whom they must deal. Through
their efforts, Kent State is a smoothly-run unit.
Public affairs officer for the
University is George Betts,
who keeps Kent in the news.

Liberal Art Majors Prep
For Varied Careers
Under the administrative eye of Dean Eric N.
Rackham, majors in the College of Liberal Arts are
busily training for degrees in such diversified fields
as journalism, medical technology and industrial
In addition to major fields, special programs in
pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-theology and
pre-osteopathy are offered students enrolled in the
Liberal Arts college.
Basically, all courses within the college empha-
size a fundamental background in arts, sciences and
humanities. Most of the programs are not specialized,
but offer a wide scope of study.
Besides its individual function as a separate col-
lege within the University, the College of Liberal Arts
also offers courses and services designed to meet the
needs of the other schools and colleges.

Looking forward to future careers in
journalism, radio, theatre and aviation technology
to cite a few, are graduating seniors in the
College of Liberal Arts. After four years of
study, coffee-breaks, and social life, these seniors
are prepared to take on the work-a-doy world.
Some will continue their study, aiming at Master
and Ph.D. degrees. Others contemplate marriage
and/or jobs. Whatever their goal, they will
mark 1956 as a red-letter year — that of

Commencement means something different
to each individual graduate. To some, it provides
the long-awaited opportunity for new achieve-
ments and to others, the end of on era of
collegiate experience. But whatever its
meaning, it is a goal for which Liberal Arts seniors
have struggled through four years of under-
graduate work. And each of the graduates has
earned the right through diligence to join the
parade of alumni as they pass down the
aisle to receive their sheepskins.

Not something to be token lightly, but
something achieved through four or more long
years and seemingly longer evenings of study,
graduation will culminate a long-remembered
interlude in the lives of Liberal Arts seniors.
It will attest both the end of an experience
and the beginning of another as block-
gowned seniors march toward their diplomas at
commencement. Kent State has done its part, now
it is in the hands of each individual to make
his own way.

ness administration and business education. Numer-
ous awards are presented yearly to outstanding grad-
uates of the college.

come outstanding alumnae who will be a credit
to Kent State and to the teachers who gave
their knowledge to the neophytes who will
carry on the high standards of the business
world. These business graduates will be the ad-
vertising men, the executives, the secretaries,
the planners of tomorrow.

Job hunting, interviewing, and placement
are next in line for the B.A. graduate. Aided by
his department heads, he steps into a position
that he is well qualified to handle, with the
confidence that the task will be capably filled.
Trained in the ways of the business world, now he
must apply practicality to theory and
teaching. Many Kent graduates have gone far
in their fields after graduation with the
excellent training received.

Competitive exams, ledgers, graphs and charts
can be put aside with o grateful sigh. Now it's
out into the business world to practice what has
been preached, and to apply the theory,
mechanics and knowledge to whatever profession
the business major has learned. But along with
the ledgers, slide rules and filled ink pens,
there must be the ambition, the personality, and
the ability to get along with other people.

Training, Recap Courses
Top Ed- Curriculum
Aims of the College of Education, under the lead-
ership of Dean Robert I. White, Jr., are twofold in
nature. First, the college trains prospective school
teachers, supervisors and administrators, and sec-
ondly, it offers a variety of courses for already certi-
fied instructors in northeastern Ohio.
Both two year cadet programs and the usual four-
year courses are offered by the college in addition to
degrees in special fields such as speech and hearing
therapy, slow-learners, deaf education and trade
and industrial education.
Graduates of the College of Education are eligi-
ble for the Ohio four-year provisional certificate since
the College program is set up in accordance with the
requirements of the State of Ohio Department of Edu-
cation. Included in the program for all graduates is
a minimum of one quarter of student teaching.
A close watch on education majors is kept by the head
of the College of Education, Dean Robert I. White.

Education has come far since the reodin', writin'
and 'rithmetic stage. It is now a rather specialized
field. Besides the general philosophy of the
practices and teachings the future educator
must learn, there are additional courses such as
educational psychology, and the practical student
teaching. The graduate goes on to further
degrees if he wishes, becomes more specialized
and has a more appreciable knowledge
for his field.

Vistas of an educational future will open up come
graduation day for seniors in the College of
Education. Prepared to instruct at all levels of
the field — from kindergarten to high school —
these graduates remind the observer that
Kent was originally a Normal School, solely for the
education of teachers, way back at its origin
in 1913. Since that time, a great number of
grads have trouped out to teach the
coming generation of Kent State undergrads.

these are the goals of graduates in the University
College of Education. Not to be denied, these
seniors, now about to join their pedagogical
predecessors, have completed a program which
included a quarter of student teaching and
many hours of lecture courses on hygiene,
biology, art, music and their special field
of concentration. Now they are ready to teach.

"All work and no play make Jack a dull
boy" — so claims the old adage. Evidently the
administration of Kent State University holds
to the saying because here there is an outlet
for virtually every field of endeavor — -from
religion to socializing to foreign affairs.
Just name it and Kent State can offer it!
A variety of activities, both individualized
for select groups and designed for all-Uni-
In the former category are departmental
clubs, honoraries, professional groups. In the
latter are such highlights as Campus Day,
Homecoming, Top Hop, and Military Ball. And
all take time and effort.
Many are designed to aid the student in
the vocation of his choice — such as publica-
tions, theatre and Future Teachers of Amer-
ica. Others merely offer a chance to grow
through getting to know people and what
makes them tick on a social basis. Both are
all-important in the University function.
The gavel raps for attention as Kent's governing body
of students opens another session on KSU problems.
Kent State's student government is similar
to that of our own American government, ex-
cept of course conducted on a much smaller
Its purpose is to be elected by and to demo-
cratically represent the student body. It also
is to provide a sounding block for all students to
voice their opinions for any program that will
make Kent a better university.
However, also like our national government,
Kent has its problems with elections. Despite
publicized campaigns only a sma'l part of the
student body turn out to vote.
Student government meetings frequently run
late when problems come up, such as the contro-
versial issues which were on the Council's agenda
this year. By making a careful examination of
their own personal feelings and looking at the
issues objectively the Student government of
Kent State came out, having accomplished an

It was a year marked by major battles and minor
skirmishes for the members of Student Council, KSU's
student governing body.
Facing Freshman Week with vigorous protests over
the prospect of no hazing. Council immediately began
to moke its power felt as the ruling stood until a win-
ter election vote soundly showed student preference
for a "return to dinks."
The Social Code also came in for its shore of at-
tention from the group as members voted to amend
the Code as formulated by the personnel deans.
But it was on the issue of the Macedonians that
Council really found itself in a stew. Faced with an
organization that claimed its aims were "to further
the gentlemanly arts such as boar-hunting and fal-
conry," Council refused to recognize the club, saying
that its aims were inconsistent with those of the Uni-
Later, with a change in "Big Brother's" constitu-
tion. Council reversed itself following a controversial
retreat into a committee-of-the-whole.
In spite of the major issues, Council also found
time to handle the routine matters with finesse.

Blue and Gold
Blue-Gold started off the year with a resounding
bong — the result of Freshman Week introduction to
And that bang reverberated throughout the fall
quarter, although the party failed in its efforts to gain
a Council majority. It did, however, capture a major-
ity of class offices.
Blue-Gold campaign literature flooded the campus
at election time, with all types of gimmicks designed
to lure voters to the polls.
Membership in Blue-Gold was increased as Alpha
Epsilon Pi and Phi Kappa Tau joined the ranks. With
a slogan of "B-G — Better Government," the political
party surged forward in its efforts to get the vote out.
All in all, the party's efforts paid off at the polls after
a slack year in '54-'55.

Despite intra-party dissention, Nu-K managed to
maintain its Council majority in both the fall and
Keyed to the opposition party, Nu-K kept its fin-
ger in the news columns of the Kent Stater and placed
its men in key campus positions. The party boasted
three of four Council officers within its membership.
Campaigning reached all-time fever pitch during
the hard-fought fall election, in which the Nu-Kites
emerged victorious, although their majority was slight.
Winter elections were considerably brightened by
a Nu-K sponsored pamphlet that stressed Nu-K's
nominating policies. "Don't put YES men in office,"
was the cry. The party, however, only managed a split
for Council offices in the slack election, but it was
enough to prove its position as a political power on

Men's Student Association
All men entering Kent State belong to one organ-
ization regardless of what college they enter or what
field they are going to pursue after graduation.
Men's Student Association is formed with repre-
sentative members and officers who are elected by
the male body of the school every spring quarter.
These men are elected on the basis of four principles
which form the nucleus of the organization: leader-
ship, character, scholarship and service.
Every winter quarter MSA co-sponsors Pork Barrel,
which features short skits by campus organizations.
This year's show was held before the largest audiences
in the show's twenty-five year history. Men's Student
Association also co-sponsors, with AWS, a banquet for
presidents of all the University organizations.
And after a lapse of one year, the Beard Growing
Contest was again revived, as MSA continued in their
efforts to give the best to KSU's male students.
Co-partner of MSA, is the Association of Women
Students, the female governing body on campus.
Automatically a member of this association after
payment of fees, a coed is eligible to choose repre-
sentatives from her dorm who will see that her requests
and opinions are heard.
AWS has the legislative power to act on all rules
pertaining to University women. It also has a judicial
side with on interdormitory council that works along
with the house council in each dorm to enforce the
regulations set up by the AWS executive board.
The Association holds parties each quarter for off-
campus women, a reception for commuters, and a
senior women's banquet. They also act as co-sponsor
along with MSA for Pork Barrel and the Presidents'
Banquet held each year.

Highlight of campus holiday festivities is the musicdepcrtment's annual presentation of the 'Messiah'.
"Music To Live By" could well be adopted as the
theme of the hard-working Madrigal Singers, smallest
of the University song groups.
These songsters easily make up for their lack of
size through the beauty of their voices, blended to-
gether in perfect harmony. The Madrigals add their
talents to many of the School of Music programs, in-
cluding the annual Christmas presentation of Handel's
"Messiah," when they join with the University A Cap-
pella and the University orchestra.
If music can be sung, the Madrigals can sing it,
and sing they do for the pleasure of audiences both
on campus and at public concerts. Hard work and
years of training have yielded the magnificance of
song as produced by the well-versed Madrigal Singers

A Cappella Choir
Every quarter is a busy quarter for the multiple
talents of the A Cappella choir. Each new school ses-
sion brings a series of demands for its appearance at
concerts and tours in the area.
Under the able direction of Robert T. Foulkes, the
A Cappella choir has reached high stature and its
many talents are extolled by music critics in the
northeastern Ohio section of the nation.
Melodic notes resound from the blended voices of KSU 's A Cappella choir as they display their reputed quality.
Rehearsal, even more than the actual performance, is a time for deep musical study.
Eighteen years ago, a small group of music-minded
Kent citizens got together and began to form the Kent
Civic Orchestra. As the years went on, students of
the University gradually entered the ranks of the
musicians, until after the second world war, the group
became the Kent State Civic Orchestra.
Many of the musicians are amateurs, but a large
number of music teachers are numbered among this
outstanding musical aggregation.
Because of the difficulties in getting together for
practice, the group has been hampered in its aims.
The deepest, most somber tones in orchestral (
rangements are usually played by the bass section.
Quality, Not Quantity
Quite often the orchestra of a large university is
lost in the shuffle of hundreds of organizations,
activities and recognition.
At Kent State, this is not so . . . because of the
high calibre of the musicians in the University's or-
chestra. The organization is one of the better known
groups on campus.
Every Christmas season, the townspeople of Kent
and the musical organizations of Kent combine their
talents to present the Messiah by Handel. In addition
to this annual presentation, the group also gives a
regular concert on May Day.
Under the direction of Louis P. Krch, the orchestra
has become an integral part of not only the cultural
life of the University, but of the entire area as well.
One of the most important axioms in the musical
world is to always follow the beat of your leader.
Staid or lilting, light or gruff, the violins are the most versatile instruments in the Kent Civic Orchestra.
Attention! Ready to march into action are the Twin Bands of KSU, headed by a corps of top majorettes.

Every week day during the football season, KSU's
twin marching bands can be found practicing several
hours for football ceremonies.
Weather permitting, the bond goes through its
paces in the Kent State stadium, oft time freezing in
the process of marching and playing.
Although the band appears on the field a short
time, there ore hours of private and group practice in
preparation for pre-game and half-time events for
the benefit of fans.
During all these many activities, band members
maintain the care of their instruments and band uni-

old, experienced band members, but KSU's twin
marching band manages to live up to its past tradition.

William Shakespeare's "King Lear," closed the
1954-55 UT season last spring quarter. A large cast,
directed by Earle E. Curtis, presented one of the finest
shows ever to be seen at Kent State. An unusual re-
volving set was designed by Howard Becknell. Charles
Kray portrayed the aged Lear, Dolo Shonobrook played
Cordelia, and the other two sisters were Sally Cahur
and Nancy McKenna. Al Mancini, Larry Lowrance,
Frank Torok, and Nancy Wynn completed the prin-
The Freshman Players opened the winter quarter
with the presentation of "Time Out for Ginger,"
directed by Dr. Bedford Thurman. This comedy of
youth and family life revolved around a football-play-
ing daughter and her understanding parents. Jean
Ann Woldvogel headed the cost which included Mari-
lyn NahovQ and Richard Smida in supporting roles.

Daily Kent Stater
It's no easy job, putting out four pages a day, four
times a week as any Stater staffer will tell you.
News begins pouring in as early as 8 a.m. on a
normal day and the flow never ceases until well past
the 6 p.m. deadline. The romance of a fabled reporter
often escapes the eager freshman as he is assigned to
do routine checking of University offices, but to the
seasoned Stater veteran, the daily rush to meet dead-
lines captures his imagination and makes each day a

Advisors to Publications
A yearbook and a daily newspaper — the two publi-
cations that present the student writer to the student
reader, require more than just undergraduate work.
It is here that the faculty advisors appear on the
scene. Professor James Fosdick and Professor William
Fisher are faculty consultants for the Chestnut Burr
and the Kent Stater respectively . . . giving their time,
advice and assistance.
This has been the initial year for both men in their
positions as aides to the publications. Without the
technical ability and the helping hand extended to the
staff members, the job would have been more difficult
than it was.
It was the job of these two men to integrate per-
sonalities, decide the merits of pitcures and copy,
and give the always needed words of advice.

Qualified cadets entering either branch of the
military program offered at Kent must study the mis-
sion and functions of the arms and services, commun-
ications and army operation.
Four honorary military outfits are active in the
many extracurricular activities that are offered to the
cadet . . . helping to present a challenge to the men
and maintain brotherhood.
Military aspects of geography and the impact of airpower are topics for discussion by AFROTC cadets.
The Reserve Officers Training Corps at Kent State
University was formed on the campus in order to se-

The program is aimed at helping the individual
student to develop his qualities of leadership, which
he will need as an officer in the armed forces or as a
civilian in private enterprise.

Arnold Air Society
Highest goal attainable by Kent State's "marching
men in blue" is membership in Arnold Air Society,
notional military honorary for undergraduate Air
Force ROTC cadets.
Air strategy is a primary problem confronting
these cadets and through a series of lectures, they
learn more and more about the art of deceptive air
power. Professional speakers highlight the group's
meetings, often offering colored slides or movies to
better illustrate their topics.
Pledges to Arnold Air Society are selected on the
basis of their scholarship and are junior and senior
men who have excelled in the ROTC classroom. These
future commissioned or reserve officers ore thoroughly
screened before being invited to join the elite ranks.
Established on the Kent State University campus a
short five years ago, Arnold Air Society honors those
men who are outstanding within the undergraduate
ranks of the Air Force ROTC.

Field trips to Canton, Youngstown and Eglin Air
Force Base in Florida are part of the agenda that the
group participates in.
An important part of the group is their sponsoring
of the Kent Ground Observer Corps post which is

Sigma Theta Epsilon
Religion is the leading light in the lives of the
men of Sigma Theta Epsilon, Methodist men's hon-
orary. However, although the establishment of Christ-
ian ideals on campus are high in the goals of the
Sigma chapter, there is time for social enjoyment, too.
Locally, the group offers its services as ushers for
Sunday services at the Methodist church. It also aids
in the annual presentation of Religious Emphasis
By the same standard, the men of Sigma Theta
Epsilon join with their sister sorority. Kappa Phi, in
the sponsorship of an annual Sweetheart dance. They
also hold a Founder's Day weekend each spring quar-
ter and feature a variety of speaker programs.
Nor are they lax in campus participation. Through
competent concentration, they join in Campus Day
and Homecoming activities and annually sponsor an
entrant in the Songfest contest.
Service programs, such as aiding in the annual
World Service Fund collection, are also included in
the yearly projects of Sigma Theta Epsilon

This group was organized to afford Lutheran stu-
dents monthly religious activities so they may better
understand their religion and lead a more Christian
life. In this way, they are performing a better service
to Kent and their communities.
The Lutheranites are proud of their Student Cen-
ter which is open all day and is furnished with such
relaxing articles as card tables, TV, periodicals, and
religious books, all available to the students.
The Lutheran Fellowship rounds out its program
by providing social activities for the members. These
include the Freshmen reception and the annual Town
and Gown dinner. Nor would the year be complete
without the popular winter and summer camping
trips. These events are made possible by hayrides,
cost dinners and square dances.

Religion Thru Service
Eight national Protestant denominations are rep-
resented in UCF — United Christian Fellowship. UCF
is one of five such religious groups in the United
The denominations represented are: Baptist, Con-
gregational. Disciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evan-
gelical and Reformed, Evangelical United Brethren,
Presbyterian, and Universalist.
Retreats are held each spring and fall. During
winter quarter, a semi-formal dance is held. Other
activities carried on by UCF are Bible study every
Thursday night and a faith study on Monday nights.
A new service started within the past year by
UCF is the workday. UCFers sign a list for times when
they are available to work for people in the commun-
ity and are paid a fee which they shore with the re-
Another well-known service performed by this
group are the sales of sandwiches and coffee to the
dorms and fraternities. They have now added ice
cream and milk to this line.
"Allow me", remarks one UCFer to another as he
wields the pot at the Sunday evening cost supper.
The cost suppers of UCF hove proved to be some of the cultural and social highlights of the year for the members.

United Christian Fellowship
UCF brings in different speakers, usually pastors
from neighboring communities to speak at their cof-
fee hours which are held on Wednesday afternoons.
In line with this, UCF sends out deputation teams
who attend the eight different denominational
churches and perform in part of the service or some-
times take over on entire service themselves.
Many religious leaders of the nation are closely
watching this group, since UCF is a relatively new
organization and just out of the experimental stage.
A board of trustees composed of thirty-six ministers
and laymen, together with professors and administra-
tors of the University, supervise the policies, personnel
and general operations of UCF.
Although eight churches moke up this group, any
student, no matter what denomination, may join
United Christian Fellowship. UCF meetings some-
times bring in as many as sixty students to hear the
different topics that are brought up. Others join the
cost suppers held on Sunday nights.
It's time for serious thought to this business of wor-
ship — so UCF'ers take time out for religious clinics.

In November the members of Hillel held their
first annual installation dinner dance. Despite the
inclement weather, the dance was well attended and
marked a fine starting point for the Jewish students
on campus. A bowling party, square dance and fes-
tival parties also highlighted the social calendar.
Social activities are not the real purpose of the
Hillel Councellorship, however. Formed for the pur-
pose of giving Jewish students a common meeting

in this respect.

Delta Sigma Pi
Frequent trips to near-by industries highlight the
Delta Sigma Pi calendar. In addition, the 2.25 point
average required for membership keeps the men near
the top in over-all scholarship.
Bock on the social front, the Delta Sigs each
year hold a dinner dance, a Founder's Day banquet
and a Monte Carlo party. Also included on the an-
nual agendo is a series of date parties.
Thirty hours of credit in the College of Business
Administration is another prerequisite for membership
in Delta Sigma Pi.
Nationally, the organization was founded in No-
vember of 1907 at New York University. It includes
eighty-five collegiate chapters. Symbolic of the Delta
Sigs is its flower — the red rose. It is the some flower
that is presented to the dote of each member at the
annual winter formal.

hand. Ever since 1942 when the business and com-
merce professional fraternity came to Kent State, the
brothers of Delta Sig have been active in University
Although business is the tie that binds the men
together, they do not lack social life. Each memorable
campus event — Campus Day, Homecoming, Pork
Barrel — finds them actively participating for shiny
gold first place trophies.
Actually, the fraternity has been a member of the
campus organizational setup since 1938 when the
local group was recognized. It was then known as
Delta Kappa Psi, a name to be discarded four years
Each year, the group plans monthly dinner meet-
ings which feature top-notch speakers in the field of
business and commerce. Moreover, the men of Delta
Sigma Pi present an annual award to the student in
the College of Business Administration who graduates
with the highest cumulative point average.

speakers in the field plus planning dinner meeting
and field trips.

Newspaper and public relations men of the future

But the men of SDX do not confine their efforts
solely to things of a newspaper nature. Tops on their

an all-University social event.
In addition, the SDXers join with the Akron Pro-
fessional chapter for dinner meetings at which
nationally known speakers are featured.
More in line with their field of major endeavor, they
aid in the presentation of the annual Northeastern
Ohio Scholastic Press Association clinic at which they
single-handedly sponsor the dramatized news event.
Each spring, Sigma Delta Chi presents a trophy
to the outstanding senior journalism graduate at the

motto, "He serves best who serves the truth."

In the service fraternity's ranks can be found the
majority of the campus BMOC's — chosen for their
leadership and scholarship. Membership in Blue Key
comes only through constant devotion and desire to
excel in the many cogs of University machinery.

ore but a minute part of the duties which each Blue
Key member strives to fulfill. The men also join Card-
inal Key, women's service group, in the co-sponsor-
ship of Penny Carnival, the proceeds of which are do-
nated to a scholarship fund.
But perhaps the service for which Blue Key is best
known among undergraduates is the annual editing
and publishing of the Student Directory without which
many a campus romance would not blossom and many
a Christmas card would be misdirected. Service, is in-
deed offered by the men of Blue Key.

Tops in University service, scholarship and lead-

in Cardinal Key, women's service honorary.
Open only to upperc!ass women, membership in
Cardinal Key represents the highest achievement by
a co-ed. Eligibility requires a 2.5 cumulative point
overage and versatility of activities. Members are
selected on a point basis.
Among the projects of the group is co-sponsorship
of Penny Carnival with Blue Key, the men's service
honorary, and the presentation each year of the Card-
inal Key scholarship. A tea is given in honor of the
recipient during fall quarter.
Come Campus Day, members of Cardinal Key
form an honor procession for the May Queen and
members of her court.
Pledges are recognized by the symbolic red pledge
ribbon and the out-sized cardinal key they are re-
quired to wear prior to activation. This year, the
group added a key emblem for the local chapter.

Active in many University pies, the members of
FTA frequently sponsor high school groups who desire
tours of Kent State's facilities. They also plan activ-
ities for these groups and are active in northeastern
Ohio pre-teaching activities and conferences.
Freshmen first learn of the many-faceted inter-
ests of FTA when they attend the organization's Frosh
Tea at which the newcomers mingle with the Presi-
dent, deans and faculty members.
Nor is the group inactive socially — it annually
joins with other campus groups for parties and picnics.
Each spring a joint meeting is held with the Industrial
Arts club. A weiner roast is also a high point on the
FTA spring calendar.
More in line with their future careers, the Future
Teachers of America club holds an annual Christmas
party for the underprivileged children in the Kent
area. At this function, they play collective Santa
Clous to youngsters similar to those they may some-
day be called upon to instruct.
Santa Claus Corps Aid
Career-minded Education majors find fellowship
and inspiration among their own kind in the ranks of
FTA — Future Teachers of America.
Training for the coming generation of school
children are the club's members through speakers and
practice of their own choosing. Included in the mem-
bership are students majoring in many fields — his-
tory, biology, industrial arts, and home economics —
to name but a few.
No lines are drawn as to interest. The FTAers
may be interested in kindergarten-primary, elemen-
tary, or secondary education. However, they are unit-
ed in the common interest of better and more well-
rounded education for the children-to-be of their
It is not surprising that the organization's en-
rollment has increased amazingly through the years
for Kent State University has long been noted for its
outstanding College of Education. Currently, the club
boasts a membership which approaches upwards into
the hundred mark.
Playing Santo Clous provides extra-special holiday joy
for FTAers who host Kent's underprivileged children.

for both the University and the community.
At business meetings, distinguished women in the

this time, the girls learn of the important role that has
been taken over by women in the business field. Know-
ledge and inspiration are given to the members
through these talks.

The honorary meets twice a month at which times
projects for the year are planned and executed. The
group performs services for both the University and
civic organizations. They also prepare materials for
classes in business education.
Members of this business group are selected for
their scholarship, citizenship, service and ethics. A

Flying appeals to many people because there
seems to be a certain glamour attached to it.
For Kent State's students who feel like taking off
into the wild blue yonder, there is a club on the
campus which tries to fulfill their desire. The Flying
Club provides the planes at a minimum cost, and
some instruction. They have in their possession,
several light planes and a glider.
Using the facilities of the University airport on
Route 5, the club holds flying exhibitions from this
Many of the members of the club ore veterans
with flying experience, but newcomers are welcomed
too. Meetings are held wherein the members discuss
the latest in aviation techniques and progress. But
for pure enjoyment, they take off and fly their planes.
The only requirement that is needed to join, is
the desire to fly. The group has a corporation charter
granted to them by the state and was one of the first
of its kind to be established.

organized social group, the members made their mark
on campus, wearing gray jackets with the red, black

float and Pork Barrel skit. And on the social front,
parties galore decorated the calendar.

Only Local Integrates
Itself on Campus
The idea for a new social organization at Kent
State started in November of 1954, With the Univer-
sity's permission, seven men rented a house, chose a
name, elected officers and settled down to the task
of keeping their idea alive.
The original seven members operated well as a
unit and soon word got around. By the end of spring
quarter, twenty-six men called themselves the "Col-
Last fall found eighteen members back at Kent.
The club's new location on South Lincoln brought the
men closer to campus activities and along with the
tedious work of redecorating the house, helped them
develop that necessary feeling of brotherhood.
The Collegiate's recent incorporation by the State
of Ohio was another step forward. Under the compe-
tent guidance of the faculty advisors, Mr. Robert
Finley and Mr. Louis Harris, the club has laid a firm
Qualifications for membership though not rigid,
are strictly adherred to. The ultimate goal of the club
is to pledge a national fraternity.
Time for a Collegian coffee break! And the brothers
assemble about the house stove to refuel on hot Java.
A bull session and a chance to discuss the day's campus activity offer a welcome
diversion for the well-dressed members of Kent's local campus fraternity.
Now a three-year veteran itself, KSU's veterans
club has increased in membership over the period. In
the beginning, the club was little more than an idea
firmly implanted in the minds of four returning Korea
From that, it became a leader on campus voice, the
voice of the former G.I. Today its membership ros-
ter numbers in the hundreds. Its projects include
participation in various campus activities, and these
activities have not been curtailed by the growing
surge of veterans to "go Greek."
The power of the veterans' organization has been
felt in all facets of University activity — at the polls,
within the student administration and on the social
front. In addition, it has proved a powerful organiza-
tion in obtaining well-deserved recognition for the
Included on the group's calendar are a series of
fortnightly meetings, social events and an opportunity
to make new friends among their own contemporaries.

Inter-racial and inter-religious . . . that's Inter-
Group of Kent State. Purely a local organization, this
club was founded in 1 954.
Off to a good start, the group took first prize in
the independent men's division on Campus Day. They
also sponsored National Brotherhood Week during
the 1956 winter quarter.
Another project of Inter-Group is to bring boys in
from the Hudson Boys' Camp to see the various plays
and programs that are given on campus. They hold
parties just for the club members and other social
events that ore given on a non-pay basis. During fall
quarter, several members attended a Human Rela-

sponsored by the Cleveland Council of Human Rela-
For Religious Emphasis Week, Inter-Group formed

Important in the development of well-
rounded adults are the so-called "living
groups" — those University organizations
which offer experience in learning to get
along socially as well as academically.
Such are the various fraternities, sororities
and dormitories on campus — an experience in
cooperation, in conversation, and in man-
"Living groups" provide the other side of
the University coin — the side of education
which deals not in grades, but in results. The
Greeks form a tightly-knit society of their
own on campus and together and individually
they work for achievement for the University.
Competition sparks this "living group" so-
ciety. Always there is the spirit of winning —
in social competition, in athletics, in a variety
of unrelated areas. But, "living" is the lesson.

With three delegates from each sorority making
up the organization, Panhellenic acts as the mediator
for the Greek groups and unaffiliated women.
Purposely set up to encourage personal develop-
ment of its members, Panhellenic strives to make
sorority life an opportunity for the affiliated coeds.
Year after year, the Council has determined rush
rules, procedures, schedules and penalties for the
eight-member sororities on campus. Attempting to
create a better system of rushing, freshman rushing
was deferred until Winter quarter, putting sororities
on the same basis as fraternities.
As a step towards creating a high standard of
scholastic achievement, Panhellenic presents an an-
nual Scholarship cup to the sorority maintaining the
highest average. The award is made on Honors Day
when it is presented to the president of the outstanding
group. Cooperating with other women's organizations
on campus, Panhellenic helps to put out the Freshman
women's handbook, "The Kent Coed."

Interfraternity Council is the main regu-
lating body for fraternities and freshmen . . .
composed of the president of each fraternity
and one delegate.
IPC's official purpose is to better the rela-
tions between fraternities and the University.
Constitutional changes to benefit both the po-
tential pledge and the fraternity were incor-
porated this year in an effort to interest more
men in Greek life.
Co-sponsors of the first Greek Week, IPC
brought the fraternity situation before the
entire student body, through its system of ex-
change dinners, community help and campus
activities. The council also awards trophies
to the intramural winners in the nine major
sports and presents an award to the fraternity
with the highest scholarship for the school

theme, "This Is Kent." Athletically, the chap-
ter also claims the three-time champ of the
University table tennis matches.
Spring quarter proved to be the undoing
of many of the brothers as they found out that
the AEPi sun porch was too sunny ... a new
recreation room, built by the men, took over
the basement completely and provided more
eating and studying space . . . and to top it
off, the first floor of the house was remodeled.
Raiding the icebox is a favorite pastime at the Alpha

Make Up For
The newest national fraternity on campus
has already become well integrated into the
role of fraternity . . . Phi Delt's annual party
for the deaf children of Kent is an outstanding
example of the part the chapter is playing,
not only in campus life, but also in community
The yearly winter formal is the social high-
light of the year for the men of Phi Delta
Theta . . . also the She Delta Theta week,
begun last year, continued in fine manner as
Kent coeds went through seven days of work
similar to their male counterparts.
For two years, the Phi Delts have been intra-
mural football champions and for one year,
have been all-University champs.
Active in campus affairs, the men of the
blue and white claim class officers. Student
Council officers and members in other im-
Initiation services were held for the men
of Phi Gamma Theta, the local organization,
which is now known as Phi Delta Theta, who
graduated before the chapter went national
. . . and then there is their well-known tug-of-
war held at Rowboat Regatta.
Phi Delta Theta's Homecoming decoration scored
high in the judges' eyes — winning third place.
Looking ahead to Campus Day songfest competition, the Phi Delts find that
melody spells leisure as well evidenced by this eager group of songsters.

Elect 'Sweater Girl'
In Annual Vote
Theta Kappa Phi members have an eye for
pulchritude as evidenced by the yearly election
of a KSU "sweater girl" . . . Also, men of
Theta Kap co-sponsor the annual Thanks-
giving weekend "Pi'grim's Prom" aided by
Newman club . . .
Athletically, the Theta Kap's captured the
intramural golf championship for two suc-
cessive years . . . And socially, they also spon-
sor a Sweetheart formal and Founders Day
Activity-wise, members are found or, the
staff of the Chestnut Burr, Interfraternity
council and on the Greek Week Planning com-
mittee . . . Each winter quarter, a week is set
aside by the Catholic fraternity to stress spir-
itual life . . .
Competition is keen among Ohio chapters
of Theta Kappa Phi with a winner in sports
competition chosen on a point basis . . . The
local chapter invariably ranks high through-
out the state . . . Moreover, it is known for its
well-stocked library and enthusiastic support
of all University functions . . . Yearly, the
outstanding senior is presented a trophy by
the chapter for participation in campus ac-
"Aw, come on, give a brother a break" is the entreaty
of the Theta Kaps as the phone gets a constant workout.
Card sharks all, the Theta Kappa Phi's ponder their hands in a post-date contest.
The perennial kibitzers offer strategic advice between shuffles and conversation.

Kappa Alpha Psi
Kappa Alpha Psi is distinctive among fra-
ternities on campus as the only inter-racial group
. . Originally the Scrollers Club, the men be-
came local fraternity in 1953 as Kappa Psi
Alpha and were recognized by the Interfraternity
In addition, they topped all competition in
scholarship both winter and spring quarter . . .
A Halloween party welcomes newcomers to the
campus in the fall of each year . . Members are
active in a variety of activities including varsity
and intramural sports . .
Highlighting the Kappa Alpha Psi yearly
agenda, is the annual "Guide Right" program
designed to give young people a bird's eye view
into the future . . . Nationally known speakers
highlight the "Guide" program . . . Kappa Alpha
Psi was nationalized last December 27-30 and
became the Gamma Tau chapter at Kent. They
are now the fourteenth national social fraternity
at Kent State.

Phi Kappa Tau
Phi Kappa Tau won campus-wide recognition
early in the fall quarter as it made the "Big
Switch" from Nu-K political party to B-G . . .
The brothers are proud of their campus leaders
— men active in the senior class, Blue Key,
Sigma Delta Chi and Interfraternity council.
Socially, the Phi Tau's cannot be termed in-
active either . . . Annually, they sponsor a Found-
er's Day, the Regional Roundup formal and a
Sweetheart formal . . . Lucky indeed is the co-ed
selected by vote of the members to reign at the
latter function . . .
Nor do the men of Phi Kappa Tau fall down
scholastically, ranking second both on campus
and among Domain fraternities . . . And ath-
letically, they notched a second in the Domain

Enjoying their first full year of occupancy since
the dormitory construction, the residents of South
Terrace this year joined with their North Terrace hall
neighbors to sponsor the first dorm formal — a whomp-
ing success with 400 couples in attendance.
The South Terrace girls also joined with North to
make the dorm a gala holiday scene during the week
prior to Christmas. Festive pine, multi-colored trees
and huge gold stars added to the decorations.
Cooperation is the South Terrace key to success.
And cooperation comes in many guises. Cooperation
with the dorm counselors, corridor leaders, friends
and with the twin dormitory. Highlight of any quarter
are fraternity serenades in the spacious main lounge
before the floor-length glass windows. — _,

complements North in every conceivable way. Also
well equipped with all the conveniences of any modern
hotel. South Terrace is a separate self-governing oper-

However, the girls of South Terrace claim larger
territory as both cafeterias are added on to the South
portion of the building as is the bakery on the second
floor. It is through the South Terrace recreation room
that lines wend their nightly way to dinner.
Tripling this year, the dorm houses girls of all

North Terrace Hall
One half of the newest women's dormitory on
campus, North Terrace hall boasts living quarters for
375 coeds. Within its pink corridors are housed
campus leaders in a variety of activities. But it is in
cooperative living that North Terrace really excels.
The gals work together under the expert guidance
of Mrs. Ethel Russell, resident housemother, for such
top all-University activities as Homecoming. Campus
Day, and Pork Barrel. In addition, the dorm is self-
government in operation. Officers are elected early
in fall quarter and serve as a dorm council in doling
out campuses for misdemeanors.
Corridor leaders keep the noise down during quiet
hours as they patrol the dim halls, guarding the study
habits of the residents.

Cooperation Pays Off
The spaciousness of truly modern convenience is
well evidenced in the construction of Terrace Hall.
North Terrace is completely equipped with guest
rooms, mail service, linen service, and luxurious
lounge. In addition, snack machines offer solace to
the dateless and food for thought while studying.
Laundry rooms and phone stalls add to the decor
and provide North Terrace residents with up-to-date
equipment. Sharing the main lounge with South Ter-
race residents is a feature of study dates. In addition,
each of the wings has a recreation lounge with ping-
pong tables and television.
Each individual room now houses three girls. A
bunk bed, a single bed, three desks, two bureaus, and
a lounge chair contrast the print drapes in each room.

Lowest building on the University totem pole,
Moulton hall dotes back to 1917. Since its first year
of occupancy, the dormitory has housed girls of every
race and religion.
This year, for the first time in many, the dorm was
not restricted to freshmen. Also for the first time in
recent years, the recreation rooms were not crowded
into dormitory living room for the overflow of frosh
that crowds the campus each fall.
However, in spite of the basic changes, Moulton
residents took over where their former residents had
left off. Moultonites immediately went to work on
decorations for Homecoming. Some turned their
talents to athletics, participating for the Moulton
Moulton Hall's governing body — headed by capable
counselors to oversee the goings on in the dorm.

Old — but friendly.
Small — but cozy.
That is Lowry Hall, chosen by a host of upper-
classmen as their place of residence for 1955-56.
Formerly, Lowry housed primarily sophomore co-eds,
but with the addition of Terrace, 'ast year's returning
students were given first choice as to their residence
hall and a surprising number picked Lowry.
Because it is the smallest of the women's resi-
dences on campus, Lowry offers a unity of purpose
found hard to duplicate in the larger dorms. It also is
closest to the classrooms, thus making it possible to
catch an extra five minutes of sleep before making
that eight o'clock class.
Included in Lowry is a television lounge and
study rooms, converted for use from the former cafe-
teria. The rooms, primarily doubles, are spacious
and homey. Each is equipped with a washstand, un-
like newer Terrace. A closely-knit group are the
Lowryites — ranking high in fellowship, cooperation

are the counselors and housemother who listen to the

The only on-campus living residence hall for men,
Stopher Hall offers on adventure in cooperation for
Almost completely student-operated, Stopher is
governed by a council composed of representatives
from the various corridors of the building. These
upper-class guides serve to orientate incoming fresh-
men in the ways of dormitory living as well as aiding
them in general University etiquette.
Relatively new in the campus picture, Stopher is
currently undergoing enlargement as additional hous-
ing, expected to accommodate some 250 more men,
is being hinged onto the main building.
A spacious, glassed-in cafeteria is perhaps the
most eye-catching feature of Stopher. Above the
cafeteria is a terrace, for dancing in warm months.
Residents have the added convenience of electric wash
machines and television. Primarily the dorm consists
of double rooms, but a few singles and triples are
scattered throughout the structure.

Stopher Gets New Wing
The dormitory for men will be expected to be
completed by the end of 1956. This building will also
house 360 men, the some number as the new women's
The dorm will actually be on addition to Stopher
Hall, and will be located southeast and northeast of
the hall. The addition will be joined to the older
building at the kitchen and dining hall.
Men will have to go outside to get from one build-
ing to the other, thus making this a rather complete
living quarter in itself. The dormitory will have its
own dining hall and recreation facilities. The supple-
ment will also have an apartment for the house man-
ager and one for his assistant.
Rooms will be on the modern side also, decorated
in the same manner as Stopher. There will be three
men to a room.

New Women's Dorm
Although a steel shortage had delayed the con-
struction, the girl's dorm which is still unnamed, will
be completed by this coming fall in time for the open-
ing of the Fall quarter.
The dormitory will house about 360 coeds instead
of the previously planned 250, since there will be
three girls in a room. Modern furnishings will decor-
ate the new structure on the same plane as Terrace
A dining hall and recreation room will be included
as part of the dorm. The dining hall will be used only
for the girls living there.
Located south of Terrace Hall, which was just
built the previous year, the building will be a welcome
addition to the campus, as the housing shortage on
campus is limited. Kent State's aim is to have all
University women living on campus.

Long noted for its athletic prowess without
being tagged with on 'over-emphasis' label,
Kent State's teams keep the University in the
spotlight on sports pages throughout the area.
From the major sports like football, basket-
ball and wrestling to the intramurals, the Uni-
versity provides a well-rounded program. Kent
State inter-collegiate teams consistently place
at or near the top in every sport.
The intramural programs draw hundreds of
entries from both social organizations and ath-
letically-minded individuals. Competition runs
high on campus in a variety of sports — includ-
ing bowling, table tennis and basketball.

Flashes Cop First
The 1955 football season may not have been as
sparkling, record-wise, as the banner 8-1 season
achieved by the Golden Flashes of a year earlier. But
in every other way last Fall's campaign stacks up as
the most significant in Kent State's 35-year grid
Coach Trev Rees, in bringing home his tenth
winner in 10 years at the helm, led his Flashes to six
wins, two losses and a tie — still one of the best records
on the University's books. And considering the calibre
of the opposition, this may well have been the best
Kent team of all time. The two losses were to power-
ful Dayton and undefeated Miami, two teams just a
step away from the "big time".
But aside from the toughest schedule in history,
the season was significant in other ways. A second
place tie in the Mid-American Conference, rated as
the most rugged small-college loop in the nation, was
certainly a proud accomplishment. Then too, 1955
saw all previous KSU attendance figures shattered.

Flashes Level OU
Pre-season hopes of an undefeated season were
popped right off the bat as Bowling Green held the
favored Flashes to a 6-6 tie.
A severe case of fumbilitis and unfortunate pass
interceptions literally "gave" Dayton a 26-1 3 triumph
over Kent. But a 33-2 victory over B-W a week later
put the Flashes in the win column and a 20-14 upset
win over perennially-powerful Ohio U the next week
tabbed them as a real powerhouse. Rees had con-
ceived the idea of alternating equally-balanced teams
at the end of each period, and this "two-platooning"
proved to be the key to the Flashes new-found success.
A 39-6 Homecoming massacre of a good Marshall
team raised enthusiasm to fever-pitch for the crucial
battle with Miami the next week. With the loop title
at stake, this was THE game of the year.
The Flashes moved to an early 7-0 lead over the
Big Ten foe, but faltered and the final score, 19-7.
The remainder of the season was anticlimatic. The
Flashes toyed with Toledo, 27-0; a narrow 14-0 win
over a stubborn Waynesburg crew; and in the final
game. Western Michigan fell 25-14.

and 1 1 losses was posted in a hustling league where

to the tune of 69-61. This was the team's first triumph
after two close losses on their initial road trip.
Moving from fast to faster company, Dave Mc-
Dowell's hoopsters ran up against Marshall College's

ence champs and the MAC representative in the
NCAA tournaments. Held to a five-point lead at
the intermission, the invaders from West Virginia
bounced back to capture a 97-83 verdict, in spite of
Dan Potopsky's 26 point effort.

seldom if ever loses, the Flashes neatly pulled out the
upset of the year. Behind Potopsky's 48 points, the

Dan Potopsky led the scoring parade with 27
points closely followed by Bill Raybuck's 24. Alto-
gether, nine players broke into the scoring column.

Flashes came in league gomes with Bowling Green. In

Wrestlers Run Up
Under the expert guidance of veteran Coach Joe
Begala, Kent's 1955-56 wrestling squad finished the
season with a 6-2-1 record. With only one returning
letterman, Begala built his team around a formidable
nucleus of sophomores.
Making the best showing of these newcomers was
big heavyweight, Les Nader. Nader wound up the
regular season and went on to capture the MAC top
weight crown in the conference championships held
at Kent. Only in his first year of varsity competition.
Large Les shows as much promise as any Kent wrestler
of the last few years.

Fortified by returning lettermen in all but one
weight class, Coach Begala will have something to
work with next year. Loss of Dick Garner will leave
a big gap at the 157 weight class for someone to fill.
However, in the tough MAC, the Kent grapplers
had a respectable 3-2 record. A bright star in the
league picture for next season is the record of Kent's
'55-'56 freshman team. The yearlings went through
their three match schedule undefeated, dropping the
tough B-G Falcons in their last match, 17-16.

Has 9-10 Year
If you had to choose one word to sum up the 1 955
baseball season at KSU, "inconsistency" would have
to be it.
Coach Matt Resick's charges showed flashes of
brilliant baseball. At other times they looked as if
they couldn't beat Depeyster's grade school team.
The final tally showed nine wins, ten losses.
Oddly, Kent often looked best while losing. Two
of the setbacks were to Western Michigan, the second-
best college team in the nation by virtue of their
runner-up finish in the NCAA tourney. The Flashes
could well have won both games from the Broncos.
They dropped the first one 4-3 in eleven innings and
it took a ninth inning rally by the champs to unseat
Kent 9-7 in the second tilt.

piled the lowest earned-run average in the conference.

First baseman Dan Potopsky, All-MAC basketball
player and a baseball standout for three seasons,
reaches for a fast flip to first as a Miami runner thun-
ders down the line. Kent split in two games with the
Hat in hand, a KSU runner heads for a vacant first
base against a hustling Wooster College nine. This
game was a warm-up for two tough contests with the
high-riding Broncs of Western Michigan. Kent lost
two close games.
Teammates wait for Third Sacker Rudy Libertini as he
crosses home plate after blasting a home run during
an early season home gome. Libertini, both in the
field and at bat led the Flashes to a 10-9 season
Off to a quick start in the "1 00" against Bowling Green are Kent's Redding, Bloch and Rittichier.
Ancient Sport Rolls
On Over Years
Track and field is, without doubt, the oldest of all
sports, with beginnings that trace back to the days
of ancient Greece. It is a unique sport in that an
athlete is not only competing against other athletes,
but against himself as well, constantly striving to run
faster, jump higher, or throw something farther. The
past year saw, for the first time, the running of a
four-minute mile. Other barriers — both physical and
psychological — are bound to be broken in the future.

Frosh Track Team
The 1955 track season at Kent State was disap-
pointing. When a team loses seven straight meets
without a victory, it is certainly nothing but that. Yet,
as behind every dark cloud, there was a silver lining.
In this case, the silver lining was the freshman
team. Possessing a glittering array of stars, it was
perfectly capable of defeating the varsity ■ — which
gives Coach jay Fischer a rosy outlook this spring.
The 1955 Flash thinclads had some top perform-
ers, but lacked depth. Valuable second and third
places often went to the opposition only because Kent
had no other contestants. Even still, the team might
have won at least two meets. A 74^2-72 'A loss to
Case Tech could have gone either way; so likewise the
76-71 setback to Akron U.
Despite the poor won- loss record, the season had
its bright spots, among them two all-time records
which fell off the Kent State books. Both were set,
oddly enough, by athletes more famous perhaps for
their exploits on the football team — Luke Owens who
put the shot 48' Vi" and Don Burke, who pole-vaulted
to a new high of 1 3 feet even.

Tennis Team Bounces
To Fair Record
Returning a volley against Fenn College is KSU's Sam
Portman, number three singles man on Karl Chest-
nutt's 1955 net team. Kent decisioned Fenn, 7-2.
Coach Karl Chestnutt, who steers the tennis for-
tunes at Kent State, admitted before the start of the
1955 season that his netters would be lucky to win a
single match. He'd had a very good season in 1954,
but graduation. Uncle Sam and scholastic deficiencies
combined to deal him a severe manpower blow for the
Chestnutt's dire prediction was well-founded, for
Kent didn't enjoy a winning season. But it was better
than Chestnutt had let on. His men managed to win
three, while losing six — a far cry from the winless
spring he was prepared to face.
The Flashes boasted at least three players who
could play on almost any college team around — Shel-
ley Wyman, Sam Portman and Harris Brown. But be-
yond them the squad was inexperienced. It possessed
a lot of youth, though, which bodes well for the future.
Chestnutt's "no win" fear was silenced right off
the bat as his racket-wielders topped Fenn 7-2. Twin
triumphs over Youngstown provided the other two vic-
tories, while losses were to Case, Oberlin, Western
Reserve, Bowling Green, Marshall and John Carroll.

Golfers Tie For Second
In MAC Title Match
After compiling a season's record of four wins
against four defeats in regular match play, Kent
State's golf squad finished in a second place dead-
lock with Bowling Green in the MAC championships.
Both were nine strokes behind the champion and host
college, Ohio University. With only one returning let-
terman, links coach Howard Morette planned his
squad around three juniors and two sophomores. Joe
Lazor, lone veteran, led the team with a 15.1 stroke
average for the season. Close behind was Gordy
Paulus with a 76 stroke per match overage. Other
team members and their respective averages were:
Floyd Paulus, 79.5; Jimmy Thompson, 81.6; Edward
Zofko, 82.8, and Mike Norcia, 83 even.

To /he students and faculty of Kent State University,
At the end of almost every yearbook, the editor writes his final message.
Some are very long, others are short. Whether they are long or short, they
all say the very same thing — "Thanks".
I would like to express my most sincere thanks to the top notch staff with
which I worked. Without their loyal work it would have been impossible to
turn out a publication of this size.
Without the professional help of the companies which we work with, the
book would be very difficult to produce. My most sincere thanks to Fred
Noer, Russell Benson, Frank Persell and Margaret Carey of the Indianapolis
Engraving Co.; Judson Rinebold of the Gray Printing Co.; and the Universal
If I were to start listing all the people I would like to thank, it would
take pages and pages. Therefore, there are naturally many people who have
worked on the book that I have not mentioned. Certain persons have done a
great deal of work and ore not even listed on the staff. To these people I
owe my deepest thanks.
In every venture of this size there are bound to be mistakes even though
everything has been checked and double-checked. I sincerely hope that none
of the mistakes which might exist will offend anyone in any way.
At times tempers flared and harsh words were spoken. The book was
always in mind and nothing personal was ever intended.
I must also thank the people that put up with my moods as I worried about
the book and struggled to meet deadlines.
As I write this, there is very little to be done on the book. The long hard
struggle which so many of us thought would never end has finally reached
that end. As the result of that struggle we have a yearbook . . . one which
we hope will satisfy everyone at KSU who helped to make it a success.
